One of the multitudes of myths that constellate around the mega-myth of ‘enlightenment’ is that when it occurs all one’s conditioning miraculously disappears.
But so-called awakening doesn’t alter any thing; it doesn’t apply to objects.
Its effects are specific to the manner in which objects – including conditioning, the programmed, determined body-brain – are experienced.
Even a mini-whiff of awakening radically transforms the relationship between perceiver and perceived: the observed is no longer experienced as separate from the observer.
And it’s clearly seen that it never was, never could be; one just hadn’t looked correctly. One wasn’t properly awake – hence the term awakening.
It is truly a light-bulb moment.
